Includes Case Studies, Building Guides, and Other Materials for Reducing Home Energy Use
CARB, led by Steven Winter Associates, is one of the original core residential research teams that are a part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building America program, formed to reduce home energy use by up to 50 percent. CARB is a leader in advanced residential building research and design, and focuses on market delivery and cost-effective demonstrations of high performance retrofits and new homes. Much of the research conducted for CARB consists of systems optimization and the incorporation of new technologies into existing homes, with the ultimate goal of significantly improving energy efficiency in American homes.
